Read more about the bat guano cleanup process here. Trapping and removal of a bat in Texas can be tricky and should never be attempted if the bat was found in a room where people were sleeping. Very similar to the Mexican free-tail, the Little Brown Bat is also nocturnal, hibernates and feeds on large amounts of insects. While at your property, Northgate Forest bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Any attempt to trap or kill the bats will only result in a failed job and frustration, (not to mention it's illegal to attempt), so never attempt anything but a proper live exclusion during the non-maternity season. Nuisance bats suspected of having rabies should always be left for professionals to remove.

HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. The incubation period is highly variable in animals and people. There is no effective bat repellent for example that can do the job easily. The proper way to get rid of them is to exclude the colony – seal off 100% of possible secondary entry points on the home and remove all of the bats from the building safely.  This virus affects the immune system, mainly the nervous system very quickly. It is often very challenging, and it must be done just the right way. An amateur attempt, by someone with no experience, or worse, a pest control company that uses bat poison, could result in disaster – dead, rotting bats, and bats swarming throughout the walls and the home. This can obviously become quite labor intensive on some structures.

I have found scratch marks from bats (in the dust) inside furnace and air conditioning ductwork in a home and also an apartment complex, and both sites had experienced bats "appearing" from the register vents in mid-winter. A bat house will NOT lure the bats out. Quite the contrary, as less than 1% ever contract rabies, and it is highly unusual for a bat to contact a person, through a sick bat may have no fear of a human or other animals. This can obviously become quite labor intensive on some structures. Read more about bat guano, aka bat poop here. The warranty does not cover maintenance oversights such as broken windows or storm damage, and does not apply if other animals chew holes into the structure that bats discover.

As said before, guano can carry histoplasmosis spores which are very dangerous to your health when breathed in. It is true that they aren’t aggressive and won’t chew up your attic. Bats are not rodents, and have little in common with mice or rats. In addition, access can be hard. It is a general misconception that bats are related to mice or considered flying rodents. The males just roost outside, in tree bark, etc.
